Hello, my cat does not have any symptoms of diabetes anymore, he’s now a good weight, doesn’t drink more than a healthy cat and goes to the toilet a normal amount of times. He eats wet food only. However I’ve not been able to get his numbers stable. We’re in the uk and for about 6 months the vet allowed all the doses to be based on home testing. Then in September he went too low so I didn’t give him his morning jab, we lowered the dose from 2.5 units to 1/2 unit. A few days later it was too high again so we slowly increased to 2.5 but his numbers were still too high. And then after about 4 months the numbers suddenly went low again and the whole process happened all over. Because of this my vet said we can’t trust the home test results and that we should judge his treatment based on one reading at 3pm in the vets. I know this is wrong and I will not stop home testing but I will say that I do not do it daily at the moment for various reasons. One being money. My vet would only allow home tests to be done on a alpha-trak which cost about £1 a strip! He’s back up to 2.5 and the vet wants to increase it soon - I tested this morning before food and his numbers were 6.5. Too low for 2.5! I did give him the dose though I’m so worried - I did it and will watch him all day and do a curve so I can show the vet the results. I’m so frustrated. Because of money I can’t switch vets, yet I’m not feeling supported or listened to anymore. I am trying to do the best for my cat and I know you will all recommend testing daily but like I said I can’t afford to. My vet will not take notice of results from any other metre. The vet only charges me every other visit and at a lower price than usual sometimes I can’t find from any other vet locally. money is a big issue for us otherwise I would look around/test daily. Please can anyone give any advice as to why my cat would be lower first thing in the morning and then higher but still lower in the afternoon say 6.5 at 7am, 22 at 1pm and 17 at 3pm??? but if we give less insulin the first reading goes up really high. I hope this makes sense.
